A GROUP of Japanese streamers have been banned from Splatoon 3 and YouTube after adding adult video content to the streamed game.
Sinsogumi is a group of virtual YouTubers or V-Tubers who use an online avatar instead of showing their face.
On October 8th, they shared a stream playing the popular Nintendo shooter Splatoon 3 with an added incentive not to lose the match.
In Splatoon 3, two teams compete to cover the game’s map with the colored ink that represents their team.
The more ink your team has on the field, the less the opposing team can have, so covering the field in your color is an ongoing war.
There is a tool called Chroma Key that many streamers use to change the appearance of a color in their videos.
A chroma key is usually used on green screens to virtually represent people in different places.
In this case, a chroma key was set up to change the color of the other team’s ink and display adult videos.
If the streamer team won, that wasn’t a problem as their stream saw the usual colorful ink that Splatoon is known for.
However, when her team lost, there were clearly sexual videos in the stream, which violates YouTube’s terms of service.
It also violates Nintendo’s Terms of Service for those who stream its games.
One member of the group, Ikinone, apologized, although it has since been deleted, as have the group’s channels.
People also claimed that the apologies made by Ikinone and the Sinsogumi group were not sincere.
Nintendo’s official Japanese Twitter account reminded its followers of the Terms of Service for streaming its games.
This includes that Nintendo reserves the right to assert copyrights for videos that violate public order and morals or that significantly damage the value of the characters or the world.
Since Nintendo likes to maintain a family-friendly image for the company and its games, it’s easy to see why it doesn’t want this content online.
